View Full Version : Will 4dr bumpers fit on the hatchback?

I was at the wreckers today and saw a nice looking 3G with 650,000km!
Little video I took:

I want to paint my 3G which has those unfinished plastic bumpers.
Will the front+rear bumpers off this 4door model fit?
They would be so much easier to paint.

Im not sure about mounting but the hatch bumper is shorter than the 4dr bumper

I just remembered that anything from the fenders foward is totally interchangable between the sedan coupe and hatch so the fron will fit.

Front bumpers from all years, trims, and bodystyles are interchangeable, but if you're swapping bumpers from a pre-facelift model onto a facelift model* (or vice-versa) you must bring the metal reinforcement along with the plastic cover, but that's the easiest way to swap them, anyway.

No rear bumpers are interchangeable between bodystyles, but year-to-year and trim-to-trim within the same bodystyle is all good.

*Remember, all hatchbacks are pre-facelift models. They never received the newer trim and bumpers and stuff.

edit: That's only 400k miles...
